I did and it says use the base timing. Im trying to figure that out. I dont have a second set of hands to check with a timing light. Im just not sure if im only off on timing or if there's other issues beyond that like fuel. I cant get it to almost fire over without staring fluid and im not smelling fuel so maybe my fuel is off to?

base timing is listed on the emissions sticker under the hood.

You want to set a timing lock in the software, find the correct value with a timing light, then set that value in the software.

This is what ive been using to come up with my deg but this looks more like 60degree not 75. As i said no second set of hands for a timing light

try 12 or 21 degrees first. 60-75 is WAY too much, and you will never get that engine to pop off and run at 60-75 degrees. Even if you had the strongest rod bearings and ringlands known to mankind.

Ill give that a try. Tunerstudio says first tooth after the extra tooth so figured it was 2 teeth spacings away which would be 60 since it has 12 teeth / 360 so 30 each. That was just my thinking by what ive been gathering. Hopefully itll be around what you said then i can fine tune it once it's running

When in doubt with timing, always start small. Worst case with starting too early/shallow on timing, the engine is not very responsive and feels like an absolute pig. Much better than popping and farting and not doing anything lol
